Did Lucasfilm just give fans a sneak peek at what Chewbacca will look like in Star Wars Episode VII? On Sunday in celebration of Star Wars Day, the official Star Wars Instagram account posted a photo of Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger with a very familiar looking Wookiee companion.
Along with the photo, the Star Wars Instagram account wrote, “Chairman’s new co-pilot. #StarWarsDay.” Many fans are speculating that this photo could be the first image of Peter Mayhew back in his Chewbacca costume. If the photo does show what Chewbacca will look like in Star Wars Episode VII, then Wookiees definitely age well.
Of course, it’s always possible that the photo might just be Bob Iger with a Chewbacca costume player. So what do you think? Is it our first look at Chewbacca for Star Wars Episode VII?
